Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller


Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller

There are a lot of fashion bloggers out there, but there is only one The Man Repeller. If you don't spend your time reading about women's clothing, know that Leandra Medine became one of the biggest and most important names in the game because of her relatable and often very funny approach to the world of style.

Nowadays, The Man Repeller is more than just a person - it's a very successful multi-platform brand. And since our initial Man Repeller Friday Fives happened over four years ago, we thought it was time for an update.

Leandra keeps kosher, so you won't find any burgers on her Friday Fives list below. However, you will find that she knows where to get a good drink with her food, and she's also discovered something called "vegan nachos." We'll allow it.

Leandra's "Perfect For" Picks

Meme Mediterranean Perfect For: Authentic Ethnic Eats 581 Hudson Street

"Morroccan cuisine in the West Village that really makes you wonder whether they eat ceviche in Marrakesh (you're too busy downing it to think too hard about this though)."

Sette Mezzo Perfect For: Dinner With The Parents 969 Lexington Ave

"Because the food is good, you're trying to eat more fancy fish and their Branzino is worth the ride up to 70th street. It's also like, $40. So make your mom pay for it."

Alta Linea Perfect For: Outdoor/Patio Situation 180 10th Ave.

"You feel like you're inside a secret garden but you're actually very publicly consuming a frozen negroni on 22nd street and 10th Avenue."

Il Cantinori Perfect For: Special Occasions 32 E 10th St

"One time I saw Tom Cruise there with Katie Holmes but the special occasion frankly, is really, really good pasta."

Rockin' Raw Perfect For: Vegetarians 171 Sullivan St

"This place is also BYOB so I'd recommend taking a bottle of Reposado and counteracting all the live cultures you're eating in gluten and sugar free, ethically sourced and high-in-protein Vegan nachos."
